Balljoint Greasing?

I was wondering how much grease to put in the lower balljoints and how much in the upper balljoints I have a regular grease gun. I have the MOOG balljoints

Thanks

just a few pumps or untill they have some play in them when u push on them. if you fill them till the greese comes out then u might pop it.

the rule of thumb that i learned in auto shop was that you fill them just until u see the boot bulge, if you go too far, to were the grease comes out, it could break the boot and thats not good
